An afternoon of art - part 1

May 21st, 2014, 5pm

I had quite a dose of art on leaving work on Wednesday afternoon, so I thought I would document it over a couple of posts.

A few days ago I noticed that a building I walk past every day was suddenly adorned with a load of photographs - 60 to be precise. I had some time to spare yesterday as I left work so I stopped to take some pictures and have discovered that this is the fruit of a project that started 2 years ago entitled Our World of Good, in which 15 young men from the King’s Cross area took photographs of people who live and/or work in their own community, as part of “a global participatory art project from TED award winning French artist JR…[allowing] people to tell their untold stories and transform messages of personal identity into works of public art.”

An excellent idea, although I must admit that I would love to be able to read more about the people in the photographs, as that would bring their stories to life even more.

And I can’t help wondering how well these paper posters will withstand the rainy weather that is forecast for the next few days!
